The Commodore’s Cup regatta is an annual event hosted by Southern Region Area 7 Sea Scouts.
The 2019 Commodore’s Cup was held at Blackbeard Sailing Club on the Neuse River from 8/24/2019-8/25/2019. Five teams of scouts from Ship 244 in Cary. NC and Ship 3 in Swansboro, NC raced FJs over the course of 2 days in some challenging conditions.
The first day was overcast and rainy with winds 5kts-10kts. Day two served up winds 10kts-15kts and gusting to 20kts. Competition between team 1 (D. Roan/A. McNeill) and team 3 (A. Boenig/C. Brawner) was tight in all four races, with a capsize and DNF in race four as the deciding factor. All five teams did well and had a fun weekend. A pod of dolphin joined the fun on day two to cap off a fantastic weekend of racing.
